On September 30, 2017, Abdulahi Hasan Sharif (age 30), a Somali national and refugee is believed to be an accused in Edmonton where a police officer was stabbed and four pedestrians struck down by a fleeing U-Haul truck Saturday night. According to several news sources, “Around midnight, a U-Haul rental truck was pulled over at a police checkpoint on Wayne Gretzky Drive and 112 Avenue during a manhunt. After officers identified the driver as Sharif, he drove off with a dozen police vehicles in pursuit. While fleeing police, the man drove into 4 pedestrians, 2 in an alleyway near 109 Street and Jasper Avenue, 2 near 107 Street and Jasper Avenue, before the rental truck flipped on its side at the 107 Street and 100 Avenue intersection and Sharif was arrested”.
Abdulahi Hasan Sharif, 30, faces charges of dangerous driving, criminal flight causing bodily harm, and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) Superintendent Stacey Talbot referred. He has not been charged with terrorism-related offences.
Sharif kept a low profile in the city’s Somali community. There was a former co-worker that came forward because he immediately recognized Sharif’s name when it began to circulate in the news media. According to him, he had worked with a “very strange” Sharif at a construction site in the summer of 2015. Sharif’s description included that he would play broadcasts in Arabic while they worked at the construction site. Besides that, Sharif talked his hatred of Shia Muslims and support for well-known leaders of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. An ISIS flag was found inside Sharif’s Chevy Malibu, but Investigators have not found any evidence that the suspect was in contact with anyone locally or elsewhere during the planning and execution of the attacks.
The latest news on Sharif report that he had been in the US before Canada, but there are no registers either he claimed refugee status. That happened in 2011, being the official entrance in Canada in 2012.
Canadians were again shaken by a suspected terror incident that is reminiscent of recent vehicle attacks in European cities like Barcelona, London, and Berlin. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has called it a “terrorist attack”. “The complexities of a terrorism investigation are vast … if additional charges are supported, they will be pursued at that time,” RCMP Supt. Stacey Talbot said.
Over and over again same scenarios are repeated again and again. These potential lone-wolves have never acted out suddenly but in most cases have been on the radar of investigation agencies. The suspect was known to both RCMP and police, RCMP K Division Assistant Commissioner Marlin Degrand told a news conference at Edmonton RCMP headquarters on Sunday afternoon. The man is a Somali refugee.
In 2015, after a complaint was made to the Edmonton Police Service that the man was displaying signs of extremism, members of the Integrated National Security Enforcement Team (INSET) launched an investigation, Degrand said.
The suspect was interviewed by members of INSET, but there was “insufficient evidence” to make an arrest and the suspect was deemed “not a threat,” Degrand said.RCMP confirmed that Sharif was interviewed by the Integrated National Security Enforcement Team (INSET) in 2015, as well as there was “insufficient evidence” to make an arrest and the suspect was deemed “not a threat.”
While authorities were investigating the incidents as acts of terrorism, no terrorism charges have been filed against Sharif at that time.
When such violent attacks take place in a country, the ability to prevent it becomes fundamental. In this case, the authorities investigated the suspect in 2015, but did not have enough evidences to arrest him at that time. Time is of the essence and such suspects must be subjected to a iCognative test to determine their malicious planning and intent along with display signs of sympathy for extremism
Along with the interview by INSET what if iCognative – advance technology developed and marketed only by Brainwave Science -been deployed when Sharif was investigated? Could ISIS related information have unearthed along with other relevant information like ties an associations with other like minded individuals? In retrospect yes, it can happen be avoided. Valuable lives would have been saved and such devastations would have been averted. iCognative technology uses P300 and P300 MERMER EEG brainwaves data along with a fully automated and advanced analysis method to deliver only 2 possible results with over 99.9% accuracy. Brainwave Science has taken lab based, antiquated iCognative technique to a completely new level by being the first company to commercialize and bring technology to the modern world. Brainwave Science’s technology result would show with over 99.9% accuracy if Mr. Shariff had any connections to ISIS or insight information about the organization due to the information stored in his Brain. If the result was Information Present, this attack would have been avoided.
Had Canadian investigation agencies utilized iCognative technology by Brainwave Science, it would have revealed the stored information on details of the planned incident, such as renting the U-Haul truck, as well as connections to the terrorist group, since there was an ISIS flag at the suspect’s car.
With the help of iCognative technology, a distinction between terrorists and innocents is made through the detection of relative information to the crime stored in a suspect’s brain.
